The Barbour Shop: Despite UofL Basketball’s Disappointing Season, I Still Got This Team’s Back

Bench-UVA

This UofL basketball season has been, well, disappointing. It was a letdown before practice even started. We lost a coach, an Athletic Director, and our sanity. Our team of great young men were forced to endure more mega media attention and questions about scandals they had no part in. People pelted them with cheap insults and petty taunts.

This team has talent yet it seems they can’t find a way to mesh it together to work properly and consistently. I think it’s a byproduct of scandal fatigue for the team. We fans have it and it’s obvious the players do. Nearly all of the Cards issues are mental. It’s as if they think too much and are slow to react on the floor. So many mental lapses led to the only consistency being inconsistency.

Dear Coach Pitino: An Open Letter From A Lifelong Louisville Fan


Dear Coach Rick Pitino,
It is truly hard to image entering the KFC Yum! Center and not, first hearing you, then seeing you on the sidelines. You have been the figure head of the University of Louisvilles basketball team for much of my childhood.

What has transpired the past few years under your reign, it breaks my heart. Whether you knew about the issues, thats irrelevant at this point.

It has been hard to be a Louisville Basketball fan… The play on the court has been tremendous. Your play calling, flawless at its best. But, the constant harassment from other fan bases… It was hard.

Coach P Drains Threes, Former Players Comment (Roast)

IMG_1182

We all know that Rick Pitino is amazing coach, after all, he is a Hall of Famer for a reason. Even though he probably has knees that would make Greg Oden and Derrick Rose envious, Coach Pitino showed us all that he has the mamba mentality on the court as well, and isn’t afraid to pull up a shot right in your face and make you look silly.

Louisville Basketball: Shining Through the Shade

jaylen-johnson-vs-uk

This time last year, the Louisville Cardinals were gearing up to host No. 2 and eventual National Runner-Up North Carolina. A win over the Tarheels would’ve been the signature win that team needed. They had talent, leadership, and were widely considered as one of the most enjoyable Louisville teams to watch in recent memory. All they lacked was a marquee win.

It started with an aggressive drive capped off by a thunderous one-handed slam from senior grad-student transfer and crowd favorite Damion Lee. He’d finish with a game-high 24 points, and would lead the Cardinals to their recognition-earning win. The city, fans, and team expressed their elation all night and into the next morning. Then, everything changed.

Everybody wanted to talk about the lackluster performance (ha) by one of the top draft picks in this years NBA Draft. I want to talk about the proficiency that Damion Lee has exhibited in the NBA Summer league. Most people thought he would go to Miami and fade away, not me. I believe he has played his way onto the team and will have a long career. Here are some highlights via @UofLFanBase for you to see just what kind of work he has put in.
